Kashan Mohtasham

Description

The rugs woven in the worksop of Hadji Mollah Mohammed Hassan Mohtasham are rare and world-famous. These rugs were finely knotted with kurk lamb’s wool in the late 19th century/early 1900s (circa 1880-1910). Mohtashams are recognized for their unbelievable quality of the materials and of the weave, adding to these:

  • a unique drawing style inspired by earlier Farahan weavings (Mohtasham’s wife was from Farahan) with floral patterns being more ‘geometrical’ than usual
  • The ‘Mohtasham red’
  • Purple silk selvedges

This absolutely breathtaking specimen is something different. The colorful medallion has been placed in a soft field with a ‘faded’ effect. Along with the medallion we see deers, palmettes, flowers and trees with birds floating all around. The magnificent and rare ivory border surrounds the field. The carpet is in overall very good condition for its age.
